Europa-Diskurs(e) – Lecture Series


The lecture series "Europa-Diskurs(e)" gives students, researchers at the university and interested members of the public the opportunity to find out about current European research at international universities and to engage in discussion with renowned guests. By choosing a thematic focus for the interdisciplinary lecture series, the CEUS also links directly to European research at Saarland University in order to promote innovative impulses and sustainable contacts. The lecture series takes place every two years.
